Ubisoft workers demand swifter action from leadership after Activision concedes to employee demands

Bobby Kotick, Activision Blizzard CEO, made substantial concessions yesterday to studio employees following a lawsuit over claims of widespread discrimination at the company and sexual misconduct. His salary reduction is largely performance-based. He had his base pay halved earlier in the year but is still eligible for millions of bonuses. However, employees were happy with other commitments.
“Today was a big win for ABK Worker’s Alliance!” The workers group took to Twitter. “Forced arbitration was removed in cases involving sexual harassment or discrimination. The company stated that it will increase its workforce of women and people who are not from the same gender by 50%.

A Better Ubisoft also saw the win and recognized it as a workers’ collective working for “real, permanent change.” Ubisoft has been dealing with sexual misconduct scandals since mid-2020. Ubisoft employees stated that they were celebrating the “great progress made by @ABetterABK” and would “continue standing together as we strive to #EndAbuseInGaming.” Activision’s promise to take action was also used by them to bring attention to Ubisoft’s inability to address its own problems meaningfully, even though it had been working on them for a long time.

Activision Blizzard made a commitment to double their non-binary workforce by 2020. They promised to invest $250 Million ‘to accelerate opportunities to diverse talent’. In addition, they will release annual salary transparency reports to meet some of the demands of the ABK Workers Alliance. They have apparently listened to employees’ concerns and taken action in just three months. Although our needs aren’t identical, there are many similarities that could be met with similar actions.

In the wake of the misconduct allegations, several Ubisoft executives resigned, including Serge Hascoet, former chief creative officer, and Maxime Beland vice president. Others were simply moved around. Hugues Ricour, Ubisoft Singapore’s managing director, was fired following a leadership audit that was triggered by multiple sexual harassment reports. He was instead transferred to Ubisoft Paris’s head office to be the Production Intelligence Director.

Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft’s CEO, stated in July that “important steps” had been taken since the misconduct allegations were first revealed. However, employees dismissed this claim in an open letter and said that they still expect “real, fundamental changes.” A Better Ubisoft also criticized the appointment of Igor Manceau as chief creative officer. It stated that Ubisoft’s creative team is made up of people of similar cultural backgrounds, including Serge Hascoet and Patrick Plourde who remains vice president of editorial “despite multiple misconduct reports being filed against him.”
